Fayetteville is a unique historic town located in central Texas between Austin, Houston and San Antonio. It is one of the few places in the United States where the entire city has been declared a historic district. Fayetteville is a friendly, family community with open hearts and open arms and a thriving art colony.
In our artist’s community you’ll discover galleries, peek into open artists’ studios, see painters, ceramicists, glass artists, and photographers in their element, creating the art that they love.
Stop by our delightful florist and gift shop, Jane’s Joy (on the square) to see the warmest smile you’ll ever see and beautiful bouquets and gardening goodies, and inspirational gifts that will melt the receivers’ hearts.
We’ve got sweet little antique shops like Yesterday’s Past (be sure to grab some homemade coffee and jelly beans), and a resale and gift shop Country Glam.
We have lots of bed and breakfasts, and a wonderful restored old hotel –The Country Place Hotel.
Our local eateries are: Orsak’s, Home of The Best Hamburger in Texas, which was recently restored, and features an incredible stained glass ceiling crafted by local glass-artisan, Dick Bour and Fayetteville I.S. D. high school students. And Joe’s Place – which is the former Baca’s Saloon, and was the location for a music video made by local country singer Todd Fritsch.
Fayetteville is also the headquarters of the The Arts For Rural Texas, an organization dedicated to bringing visual and performing arts to the rural communities of central Texas.
The local Chamber of Commerce is striving to promote Fayetteville, yet maintain and preserve the local charm and heritage.
Fayetteville is rich with history, art and humanities, education, and charm. Come visit!
